Color Throwdown #58 with Stampin Up


This weeks Color Throwdown challenge is being sponsored by SU demo Denise January at Sassy Stampin'. The colors for challenge #58 are Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose, and Always Artichoke. I took liberties with these colors and although I used SU cardstock I used Ruby Red instead of Regal Rose. It was just workin' for me ;)


I chose to use this adorable image from the set Hit the Road. I love the dog driving this jeep! My family loves to hike and explore and get out into nature and I love these images. I used some dp which I believe is Bella Rose, and retired, along with the cardstock. The image is stamped on Neenah cardstock and colored with Copic markers. I also shaded around the jeep image with a B0000 Copic and after cutting out the image with my Nesties I used Distress Ink in Antique Linen to shade the edges with the die in place. I used a bit of Diamond Glaze on the headlights and Stickles the give the dirt some extra umph!! The canoe is cut out and added to the top of the jeep and the entire image panel is popped up on the card. I did not have an appropriate sentiment to go with this so I wrote in "Road Trip" with a black Sakura gelly roll pen.

This week we are introducing our September guest designer, Kristin. Make sure you head on over to the Color Throwdown to see all the wonderful designs this week and play along with us!

Oh my goodness…what an absolutely adorable card! Love this fun main image and how you let the canoe peek out from the top of the panel. You coloring is fabulous and that patterned paper goes beautifully with your image. Also adore those buttons with the hemp twine. They’re a perfect complement to your card! Soooo cute!!

Hi Danielle, I did sent a comment but it seems to have disappeared, so will try again. Wow what an incredible blog and cards you have and do. They are so beautifully done and especially love your color throwdown 58 of the four wheel drive with the dog driving. We are crazy mad about 4wheeling and as a family have three of them and love going out on weekends and have fun as a family. Is there any way I could purchase the stamp from a demonstrator or store where you are. It is fab and your card is so well done. Love it.

Hi Rel,
Since you left no email address I hope you check back here for info! I am told that you cannot order SU from the U.S. it would have to be within your own country. I was directed to Tracy at http://www.stampingseasons.blogspot.com/
She is in NZ and should be able to help you! I hope that helps!
